Surprising the Lagoa Bombeiros With Some Gifts

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestmail

You may remember a short while back that a photograph I donated to the “Alerta de incêndio florestal” Fine Art Auction to raise well needed money for the Bombeiros reached an amazing €150.

The following day I was contacted by Debby Burton (Alerta Chief!) to tell me that word had filtered down that the Bombeiros who assisted with the carrying of the artwork to and from the stage during the auction wanted the photograph but was out of their budget to bid. Without a thought, I offered a framed print to donate to them to hang on the walls of the Lagoa station.

We have been waiting for the same shift staff to be at the station and this afternoon was the time to turn up with Debby & husband ‘Bertie’ along with Bomberios Chief Gabriel to surprise them with a framed print. I also took along 2 smaller prints from the same day. It was an honour to present these prints to these incredibly hard working people who put their lives at risk to protect the lives of many others!

(If you are wondering who took the first photo, well done to my partner Emma who took charge of the camera!)

Red-veined Darters Mating At Salgados

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestmail

This morning I had a great time at Salgados giving a guided nature walk, we saw lots of bird life as you’d expect, Flamingos, Glossy Ibis, Marsh Harrier, Spoonbill, Purple Swamphen to name a few. However, at an area that had a large puddle of water there were lots of mating Red-veined Darters mating.

Once mating has finished, the male and females stay attached and the female lays her eggs in the water. I snapped this quick photo of a female laying whilst still attached to the male. Whilst not the best photo, it shows this weird behaviour that the Red-veined Darters have.

This Week’s Featured Print – Sunset Over Castelo De Silves

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestmail

This shot was one of my most satisfying ones to date. Earlier in the day I had predicted a colourful sunset due to the high thin clouds but about an hour before sunset lots of much thicker high clouds rolled in. However, I trusted my instinct and headed to a favourite spot just outside the city of Silves that has an amazing view of the Castle and Cathedral and waited. The sunset was a little disappointing as the thick clouds remained, however, by the time the “2nd sunset” arrived (usually 10 to 20 minutes after sunset) the clouds had started to clear and the sky lit up in a collection of colours.

I underexposed the shot to create a magical silhouette of the Castle and Cathedral against this magnificent backdrop.

New Special Edition Large Acrylic Prints Now Available Of 2 Of My Favourites!

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestmail

Occasionally, I will produce Single, Limited & Special Edition Prints to compliment all the prints available in the Web Shop.

I have produced 2 new Special Edition Prints (just 1 of each are available) that are now available to purchase. Both prints are printed on acrylic in a large 60x40cm dimension.

Acrylic is an expensive printing process which is printed directly onto 3mm thick acrylic and then sealed with a white background giving a stunning polished frameless look with real depth. It creates a view as if the image is back-lit which really makes the colours stand out to the viewer. I am able to offer local pickup here in São Marcos da Serra or I will personally deliver within a small radius of the central Algarve region, I can also deliver to the town of Ourique in the Alentejo.

No matter how hard I try, the beauty of these acrylic prints cannot be appreciated by a photograph and viewing is also available, please Contact Me to discuss this, the Coffee is on me!

Please note, there is only 1 print available of each image so be quick!

The first image I chose to produce was Waves At Dusk. This image was taken on Praia de São Rafael just after sunset and captures the waves washing back out to sea.

This Week’s Featured Print : Sunset Riders

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestmail

This week’s featured print is only a few weeks old and I keep seeing it and keep admiring it. It came as complete luck, twice!

It is a small group of horse riders on top of the sand dunes at Salgados silhouetted by the orange glow of the sunset, the fact that a pair of Glossy Ibis flew into the frame was amazing.

Read the Sunset Riders – A Double Lucky Shot blog post for full details.

Of course, as usual for featured prints, there is a small discount applied for both framed and unframed prints. The contrast between black and orange looks amazing in print!
